Family Immigration Lawyer NYC

Who Qualifies for Family-Based Immigration?

If you are a United States citizen or Legal Permanent Resident (LPR), certain family members may be eligible to immigrate to the U.S. based on their relationship with you. Different relationships grant relatives differing levels of priority in the immigration process.

It is important to review all of your options and pursue the route which will give you the highest likelihood of success. A New York City immigration lawyer from Musa-Obregon Law PC in Queens can provide invaluable assistance with each part of this process.

We represent individuals throughout Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Rockland County and Westchester County.

Immigrant Visas for Family Members in Queens

Immigrant visas are issued without restriction to immediate relatives of U.S. citizens, including spouses, unmarried children under 21 years of age, orphans adopted overseas or to be adopted in the United States and parents of citizens 21 and over.

  • Siblings of citizens, their spouses, and minor children, if the citizen if over 21 years old
